2014-11-20
   

APPLICATION UGA JANFEST HONOR BAND 2015

January 22-25, 2015

 

Students interested in applying should complete the following steps.

 

1.    Email Ms. Baker by the end of the day Friday, November 21.

2.    Complete and return the application form to Ms. Baker by the end of the day Friday, November 21.

Students who are selected by the UGA JanFest committee will need to attend the entire event. You may not miss any portion of the honor band for any other commitment. Seniors who wish to attend UGA may schedule and audition during the honor band weekend. Parents are responsible for transportation, meals and lodging for the entire event. It will be considered a field trip and excused as such by the teachers at McIntosh.

The University of Georgia January High School Band Festival (“JanFest”) is a four-day event for high school band musicians. Students are nominated for participation by their director by way of this website early in the academic year after receiving the JanFest announcement. UGA Bands staff selects students to participate based on the order of the director’s submission, the instrumentation need of the festival bands, and the reported musical achievements of each student. Typical festival attendance is approximately 1000 students from 130 schools. Directors and other adult chaperones accompany students to Athens for the event. Directors are responsible for housing and food arrangements for the students. The festival announcement includes a list of hotel properties in close proximity to the festival site. Students are placed in festival bands on the basis of an initial audition. These bands rehearse several times before a final performance on the final afternoon of the event. Attendees also enjoy several featured performances by guest high school bands and UGA student ensembles, including the UGA Wind Ensemble.

 

All Fayette County School Guidelines are in place throughout the entirety of this event. Students who do not follow all guidelines will receive a consequence for their actions.  Do not apply for this event if you have a conflict with any of the dates or expectations for this Honor Band.
